Do you know what a secret really is? It’s something you can tell everyone, but only a very few people will actually understand it.

Story.

A few months ago, I realized something important: what makes me happiest in life, on a daily basis, is to help others.

Unlocking a business problem, connecting 2 people who deserve to know each other, discovering a new practice, finding a job to someone… I have 1,000 faults, but this, I think I’ve always done, as much with my closest friends as with strangers who contacted me through Linkedin or any other way.

It took…


At least, we hope it’s the last.

My name is Maxime Blondel (Blondy). I’m the CEO & co-founder of The Secret Company, a studio building scalable, remote, self-funded companies. Today, I want to share with you this big news: THIS IS THE LAST STUDENT STARTUP CONTEST EVER! 😉

At The Family, we make no difference between entrepreneurs. That’s why we hate the term “student-entrepreneur”. You’re either a student or you’re an entrepreneur. You have to take responsibility for the choice. There’s no problem in starting a project during nights and weekends when you are a student. It’s even a great idea to learn and progress. But if…


My name is Maxime Blondel (Blondy). I crashed my first entrepreneurial project at 21 and then sold my second one at 23. After working 2 years at The Family, I’m now the CEO & Co-founder of The Secret Company, a studio building scalable, remote, self-funded companies.

It’s been 6 months since I started a School Tour across France: engineering schools, public universities, private business schools, digital campuses, high schools… With 80 events organized and nearly 5000 attendees, I’ve had the chance to interact with a lot of determined students.

And virtually every time, I’m struck by how that determination and…


I’m Maxime, I’m 23 years old and I started studying Search Engine Optimization 3 years ago in my dorm room. After working 2 years at The Family, I’m now the co-founder & CEO of The Secret Company, a startup studio that has notably created SEO Secret, an SEO-optimized content creation partner for ambitious companies.

Over the past year, I’ve built and grown 3 marketplaces in the event sector, all with a 95% SEO acquisition strategy. …


Come on, let’s confess something. I’m that kind of guy writing on post-it I oblige myself to reread every morning. I have the feeling that it reminds me which path to follow. Do not forget things I don’t want to forget. Trying to anchor what I think is not yet assimilated.

For 3 months, I did so much post-it that I ended up creating a Word document: “Entrepreneurial Reminders”. It is full of small sentences: advices from seasoned entrepreneurs, essential business concepts, inspiring catchphrases… But before sharing it with you in a future article here, let me tell you the…

Well, okay, the title is a little rough, but finish reading and you will see it was not bullshit.

As a guarantee of transparency, let me introduce myself:

My name is Maxime Blondel


It’s been 2 months since my days and nights have been monopolized by Le Wagon, a coding bootcamp. That is to say, a (very) intensive program of 9 weeks where dozens of people (40 here) from diverse backgrounds learn the basics and best practices of web development : HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, Javascript, PostgreSQL, Bootstrap, Github…

After the failure of my 1st start-up, I had clearly observed the technical knowledge of “how the web works and how to build web products” was missing from us. …


Nous sommes le lundi 3 juillet 2017. Je sors d’un restaurant japonais. On a décidé d’arrêter The Young Economy. Récit.
